Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries

Outward Bound Canada aims to make outdoor education experiences available to all, regardless of financial status. With the help of sponsors and donors, we are able to offer students scholarship and bursary options to help with course costs.


Outward Bound Canada’s Youth Access Fund is supported by a variety of individuals, corporations and foundations, making it possible for youth who come from less advantaged socio-economic and/or cultural backgrounds to participate in our programs.

Over the past seven years, support from our generous donors has provided the opportunity for over 500 under-resourced youth to attend one of Outward Bound Canada’s summer wilderness expeditions. It is our hope that we can continue to increase these opportunities in years ahead.

Outward Bound Canada’s Youth Access Fund was created so that all youth participants, regardless of their financial situation, can access our life-transforming programs and realize their full potential.

The needs of youth are complex. Their potential is enormous, as is the potential for them to grow through the challenges and rewards of Outward Bound Canada adventures.

We invite interested individuals, foundations & corporations to support us in this endeavor through the provision of funds, which will provide assistance for even more under-served youth to participate in Outward Bound Canada programs.
